The Tour de Mississippi Mills Route (100 km)

Now here is a lovely cycle route that takes you through all the hamlets of Mississippi Mills: Almonte, Appleton, Ramsay, Clayton, Bennies Corners, Blakeney, and Pakenham. The 100 km loop is the feature ride of bike month in Mississippi Mills and it will often attract cyclists from Ottawa and up the Valley.

Admittedly, this is one of my favourite local rides because you can see so much of our community!  Of course, you will want to start and finish this ride in Almonte…
